    Just wanted to share that I've been a 10C member for almost 25 years, was really excited for this tour, especially when I saw that for the first time in ~7 years Pearl Jam be playing somewhere local to me (I'm in the DC metro area). Imagine my sadness & disappointment to get shut out not only of fan club tickets, but Ticketmaster as well, which seemed to sell out in roughly a nanosecond. I'm going to keep trying, but the odds don't look good. I hope there will be another leg or other shows added at some point for their tour, somewhere I can travel to that's less than a 3 hour plane ride. But there's part of me wondering how this happened & how many other 10C members out there also had something similar happen to them this tour. Is this just terrible luck, or something wrong with the process? Thanks for listening.
    I'm in the same boat! Live 25 minutes from Baltimore, been in the fan club for 23 years. First time I couldn't get tix to a local show. So disappointed. I'm shocked really. Never expected that to happen.
    I also have to agree that this was a really disappointing fan experience after also being in the club for 25 years and getting a rejection notice for tickets in my home town of Baltimore. After reviewing many of the posts a lot of long time 10c fans also did not get tickets. Suggestion to go back to the prior 10c process versus having Ticketmaster "randomly" select them. Thanks for listening!

    Baltimore is an easy trip for a massive chunk of the Northeast (either an easy drive or an even easier plane flight), ESPECIALLY for a show on Saturday. Royal Farms is a smaller venue, so there were probably fewer seats allocated to the 10 Club than any other show on that leg. Anyone who actually GOT tickets through the lottery should feel INCREDIBLY lucky.
    My only issue with this lottery is that I don't think the "odds" they displayed were anywhere close to accurate.
    The only reason Baltimore was so bad is they only played 2 shows in the Northeast, and on a weekend to make it even worse. If it was a normal tour, it would not have been nearly as bad. Likely just to make sure they hit the NY market with a new album.  Also, you should not have been allowed to use a 1st priority choice on both Canadian and US shows, it should have all been one pot. 

    Yes, I forgot to mention the lack of other shows, driving up demand for the Baltimore show. My point remains the same, though: you had to be VERY lucky to get tickets (answering the original question of whether it was just luck or a problem with the process).
    I don't disagree about the Canadian and US shows having different priorities, but I don't think that had as big an effect. I think many in the Northeast US would have had Baltimore as their #1 regardless.

    Dear Pearl Jam, After this painful time in history is over please never go through Ticketmaster again. Some of us who sold fan to fan tickets are not being paid.  They have handled this all so horribly and communicated terribly and obviously have very poor training of staff, probably because they have the worst ratio of employee pay to CEO in the world, and they are becoming a bigger monopoly every day.  Please.  Fight the good fight.  Maybe this time....

    They are acquiring more and more companies and gaining billions and billions of dollars in revenue with their 20 percent service charge.  

    The CEO:
    Rapino has led the company in acquiring several festivals and companies, including House of Blues Entertainment in 2006,[17] Bonnaroo Festival in 2015,[18] and Blue Note Entertainment in 2017.[19] Rapino earned $70.6 million in 2017 and was reported to have one of the highest discrepancies in salary between CEO and his employees who earned an average of $24,000.[20] Also in 2017, he extended his contract with Live Nation through 2022.[21] Rapino was appointed to the SiriusXM Radio board of directors in January 2018.[22] Also in 2018, he was listed as #1 on the Billboard Power 100 list of influential people in the music industry.[23]

    Gigaton pre order vinyl:
    My preorder (ordered in February) came 3 days late- a minor complaint considering everything going on in the world.....but I don't seem to see a digital download with it?   This is troubling.  With almost every other vinyl I buy there is a digital download.   Saw the vinyl on Amazon, and you get a download (and free shipping) with a purchase.  At $51 with tax and shipping I'd expect a digital download.

    I agree, although I don't think it came with a digital download. I ended up biting the bullet and downloading it from iTunes, but mainly because I had already paid for the singles when they came out.

    I did as well. It's surprising they didn't offer them because it's beyond common at this point...and not expensive at all.
    I LOVE MUSIC.
